Short description: 

Rochester Institute of Technology is a private institution that was founded in 1829. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 12,429, its setting is suburban, and the campus size is 1,300 acres. It utilizes a semester-based academic calendar. Rochester Institute of Technology's ranking in the 2019 edition of Best Colleges is National Universities, 102. Its tuition and fees are $44,130 (2018-19).

Despite its name, the Rochester Institute of Technology offers programs in the liberal arts, art and design, and business, in addition to science and technology. Co-ops – paid, full-time work experiences – are an important part of an RIT education. For some majors, co-ops are required; for others, they are encouraged. Students also have the option of completing one of about 20 accelerated degree programs, earning, for example, both a bachelor's degree and an MBA in five years.

For a break from school work, students can hang out in the RITZ Sports Zone in the RIT Student Alumni Union or a game room run by the Residence Halls Association, among other options. There are about 300 student organizations, including fraternities and sororities. Freshmen are guaranteed university housing, and close to three-quarters of all students live on campus. Students showcase their school pride every Friday – also known as Spirit Day – by wearing the school's colors, orange and brown, in addition to showing support at RIT Tigers sports games.
